Hodges Gets a Gong (CoC AAR)

Post by IanKH » Sun Sep 22, 2019 4:41 am

I played another COC game yesterday, but this time set in the Pacific 1942 - Aussies vs Japanese. It was a great game with plenty of drama and my first COC victory. Please have a read of my AAR an see just how Hodges wins his gong!

Cpl Hodges is clearly the Steve Smith of this Australian team (everyone give standing ovation whilst booing at the same time).

Lt Hodges is equally clearly Tim Paine - lots of shit decisions, but somehow still fluking a win and hanging on to his job.

Now, did anyone remember to bring sandpaper?

Very enjoyable AAR, loved the photo format! Thanks for this.

Just one thing, I thought the Aussies were defending? In the Probe scenario it's the attacker who wins by getting a team off the opponent's table edge not the defender.
Looks like someone forgot to tell Lt.Hodges.

REVIEW! Oh, wait....the Aussies have used up all of theirs.

I'm still a novice. The terms and conditions were read out aloud by my opponent (a veteran COC player). So I plead... It's His Own Bloody Fault!

Fair enough! Stopping Aussies going onto the attack is well nigh impossible anyway! :D
